    Merthyr Farm Harlech


    DSCN1603 (Copy).JPG Views are amazing from this site above Harlech. Best in Wales?
    Most of the pitches have been leveled and most have EHU. 3 pitches in this field non-EHU.
    Showers etc very good. Campfires allowed off the ground.

      Stunning views.

      We were thinking of Wales for next year (as well a as a Scottish break) and Merthyr Farm looks so nice we have bookmarked it.

      Thanks for the heads up

        The only Downside is it can get windy or low cloud can be a problem but on the two visits I've been the weather has been good.

          Having recently returned from a cottage holiday that had horrendous teeny tiny roads leading to and from it with virtually no visibility because of high hedges,John is concerned that being so rural the roads will be like we experienced then. I've said that although the roads look small they so at least look like you can see anything coming towards you.

          What were the roads like out and around the farm please Gulliver ?

            Once you leave the main Barmouth / Harlech road at Llanfair it is single track for 1 1/2 - 2 miles but you are climbing up so no hedges or gates just wonderful views.

              Many thanks Gulliver.

              Did your van struggle? Ours come to a virtual stop on a hill unless we have a good run up. Probably wouldn't be so bad (for us) if there wasn't a traffic build up behind us as I get a bit anxious about delaying everyone

                I was tent camping as only had Duo since end of Sept. It does struggle up the hills (non turbo) Have to start peddling.
                Will bowl along quite happily at 70mph on the flat.
                When I get in and drive my Peugeot 207 SW it feels like I'm in a F1 car.
                The road to Merthyr is steepish for the 1st half mile or so then flattens out to gentle slope.
                There is a short cut to Harlech which saves going back to the main road but it is very steep 1:4 and very few passing places.

                  You should try driving a Ford Ka to the Orkneys as my ex and I did some years ago. Oh dear. I thought i would have to get out to push, as we used to when Dad drove the Austin 7 up a hill. (An early memory so it may have only happened once, I guess.) Ford Ka's just are not made for hill climbing!
                  A badly under-powered car though fine in towns.

                  Strange that you have a problem. We found our R20s and C15 were ok with hills, just a case of dropping into third or maybe second gear. Just have to be brave and zoom! I presume you don't overload the van. But it is nice to be able to take a run at hills, I agree! It is the thought that maybe, just maybe, the car will have a problem that is daunting.
                  Carpe diem!

                    She does OK in fact very well if we get a run up to it just chundles if we can't and I'm constantly looking at the traffic build up behind. She is a 2002 after all.

                    In respect of getting out and pushing, we once camped at Port Einon which has a sharp turn and then the hill. We were trailing a the time, pulling with a Ford Escort and she just couldn't do it. Me and the children had to get out and walk up the hill to give the car and trailer a chance.

                      So were we with the ka. Not that it did much good as we didn't dare to stop lest we would not be able to get moving again. Other drivers must have thought we were very thoughtless!

                        If you want to see delaying traffic watch this video of us going up a 1:4 hill - Countisbury Hill A39 with our old Renault Trafic

                        Personally I think we contribute to road safety by slowing everyone down - thats my excuse
